In progressive metal circles, the names of guitarist Jim Matheos and vocalist John Arch are spoken with due reverence.

Arch/Matheos re-signs with Metal Blade Records

Metal Blade Records has proudly re-signed Arch/Matheos for a worldwide deal!
 
Arch/Matheos began as a reunion between founding Fates Warning members John Arch (vocals) and Jim Matheos (guitar), who hadn't collaborated since John Arch's solo EP, “A Twist of Fate” (2003) - and hadn't fully collaborated for a whole album since Fates Warning's “Awaken the Guardian” (1986). In 2010, the duo began working on a record together and brought along three Fates Warning members to the fold. The five members would in turn release their debut album “Sympathetic Resonance” in 2011, under the name Arch/Matheos.

Hey Thor-Axel. I’m sure you’re glad to see your so-long anticipated debut on the market at last!
 
T: Thanks Thanos. I am really happy to finally have achieved one of my goals. To release an album, with my own music, made on my own terms.
 
 
I guess 7 years to complete your debut album is a lot of time. What held you back and what were the issues you faced during those years?
 

Mindtech - Elements of Warfare

Starting out in 2007, the story of this Norwegian metal band is kinda complicated among well-known members of the Norwegian scene and a name change (the band’s first name was Beyond Flames). The main thing is that Thor-Axel Eriksen (Tritonus/ex-Quadrivium), on guitars & bass, made this happen as he gathered around him a few other great players such as: Ole Devold (Tritonus/Loveshack) on drums, Lasse Finbraten (Circus Maximus) on keys, Aslak J. Johnsen (Loveshack/Frimann Frelst) on vocals & Marius Belseth (Dolls of Disaster) on guitars.
